The Engineering Manager's Survival Guide

Backstory 💡

I'm Nico, since 2009, I have acted as a software engineer, lead developer, technical project manager, engineering manager, vice-president of engineering, and chief product officer.
During this journey, I led and grew a team from a few engineers building a new product to a department of 80+ teammates delivering an enterprise suite.
My hardest personal shift was the transition from software engineer to engineering manager. Since then, I’ve been mentoring engineering managers. Engineering managers I hired or promoted as well as, engineering managers working in different companies and various fields. During these mentoring sessions, a lot of common questions are coming up.
That's why I decided to write The Engineering Manager's Survival Guide. 👩💻
